The Wellness Consortium

Kansas City’s Premier Network of Wellness Practitioners and Vendors

Welcome to Your Holistic Networking  & Business Support Group

We are wellness practitioners and vendors in the Kansas City area, passionate about whole-person health. While growing our individual businesses is important, we also have a heart for making a difference in people’s lives. 

We believe all wellness practitioners and vendors – including you – has an important role to play in the well-being of our community. That’s why we come together to learn how each of our different services can better help people discover the best version of themselves. We use the framework called the Quadrants of Well-Being to keep the wellness language easy and consistent for our community.

Our group is diverse – made up of medical doctors, chiropractors, bodyworkers, acupuncturists, aromatherapists, personal chefs, counselors, physical therapists and trainers, yoga teachers, infrared sauna owners, local cafe owners, professional organizers, Feng Shui practitioners, business coaches, and many other different business support services including copywriting, image branding, website support, social media strategists, and brand messaging.

While we all come from many different walks of life and years served in our industries, we help people see that all it takes to get moving in the right direction is taking the next step in front of them.

Learn more about our story and mission with our “Let Us Tell You A Story” handout.

"I came to the Wellness Consortium because my holistic dietician invited me. I stayed because even in the first meeting I saw that this was a group of my people who treated their clients the way I do with time and attention and personalized care. I’ve not only built good friendships with people I trust and want to hang out with, but also a professional collaboration of trusted referral partners. The Wellness Consortium is unique – there is not any other group I’ve found that offers what they do in terms of connection, collaboration, business training and education – all geared around the health world. It is much more than networking!"

Dr. Jessica Cummings, PT, DPT of Restore/Thrive

"If you are looking for like-minded people who can support you and lift you up, this is the place to be! It can be hard to be a solopreneur because you can feel alone. This group filled the role, being a place I can ask questions and collaborate so I feel supported. Personally, I’ve met amazing people who have become close friends. Professionally I have received clients both from member referrals as well as fellow members using my services. Likewise, I’ve found wonderful practitioners to support my own health. "

Miriam Kaseff, Integrative Nutrition Health Coach at Well Life LLC

"The Wellness Consortium is an amazing community. As long as you’re willing to show up and give, it will come back in abundance! As a solopreneur, I was looking for the community I crave through different networking groups and not finding the people who were interested enough to even ask more about Feng Shui. Here it just clicked. Yes, we are all here to grow our businesses, but this group provides so much more - friendships, business opportunities, referrals, self-development, business resources - the bounty never stops! The members are so invested in everything each of us are doing."

Robyn Stevens, Feng Shui Consultant at Robyn Stevens Feng Shui

“For me, the best part of the Wellness Consortium is the community. This is a group of people with the same goal who enjoys helping others achieve that goal. Professionally, the group has been a great referral source as well as a think tank. There are many business aspects not taught in professional school and having all these minds to tap into to support the practice has been phenomenal. In meeting more people, I’ve learned about different fields, which has broadened my horizons.”

Patrick Chandler, PT, DPT, CF-L1 with the Kansas Athletic Club

Membership Benefits

Meet Your Community

Convenience is a deal-breaker for many people, which is why we established five small groups of wellness practitioners and vendors across the Kansas City area. With meetings in your neighborhood, this encourages our members to attend all meetings because of location convenience.

Each monthly gathering encourages you to connect, build, and support one another, whether that’s sharing advice, successful tools and resources, or most commonly, referring patients or clients to each other’s businesses.

Better Together

We understand feeling supported is a human need, especially as business owners. It’s one of the many reasons this group was founded. Our members have more than a vision – they know this is their life purpose, to better our community and the way we take care of ourselves and each other.

Our monthly meeting topics vary, but often include sharing how we’re handling today’s challenges, giving business tips, and many other memorable moments that ultimately build lifetime relationships with each other. These relationships are what build your spirit, mind, and body so you can continue giving to your business with a full cup.

Connect

Making a connection with others is a foundational need for success. This goes beyond just making friends or networking. We believe you need authentic relationships in your life, but it starts with connecting with other wellness practitioners and vendors by showing up at events.

Annual members enjoy unlimited monthly meetings in six locations:

  • North Kansas City
  • South Overland Park
  • Shawnee
  • Leawood
  • Lee’s Summit
  • Virtual

Amplify your connections at our two 90-minute City Wide events in January and July with special guest speakers and programs. All proceeds for these two events are donated to the Big Shifts Foundation.

Build

There’s a lot to focus on when it comes to building your business, and making room for educational opportunities can be difficult. This is why some meetings incorporate educational opportunities to help take your business to the next level.

Sharpen your skills through quarterly events that are centered around business development.

Boost referrals by highlighting what you do during our “Member Spotlight” each meeting.

Increase your business exposure by being active in our portal:

  • Customize your profile in the Member Directory
  • Post events under the Member Calendar
  • Elicit business with coupons and special promotions
  • Share press releases
  • Make use of the job board

Support

A support system is about more than just sharing the hard stuff. In fact, what we love most about it is celebrating each other’s successes. We were made to lift each other up, and not just cheer you on from the sidelines, but walk the path together.

Engage in forum conversations in our portal, share business offers for other members, find accountability partners, share resources, write each other reviews, and show up at each other’s events.

Our wellness practitioners and vendors rave this is one of the best communities they have ever belonged. Why? Each small group across the Kansas City area makes it a place that feels “soul to soul” rather than “role to role”. Wellness practitioners and vendors feel that sense of community during their gatherings, and it fuels each of them to continue growing personally and professionally.

The referrals have been excellent, and I love the collaborative relationships to assist with patient care. I feel good knowing they receive the care they need from a trusted source. "

This community provides access to a wide range of health and wellness specialties I can share with my clients, and utilize for myself. There is a depth of knowledge and resources in The Wellness Consortium, and you'd be hard pressed to find another group of professionals so willing to help."

    "As someone with my own business, having fellow supporters to feel connected to and provide community is key for me. I really feel there is a team of people who want me to succeed and are invested in my success. I’ve received so much from the Wellness Consortium including new ideas for offerings, feedback that has been critical, clients and social proof. I would recommend people join this group because it’s a place to find fuel and the support is incomparable. In a world filled with a sense of competition, this is a place where you are embraced and surrounded with collaborative energy."
